The Midnight Sky [2020] ★½

I rarely say this about any movie, but I truly struggled to finish “The Midnight Sky”, Netflix’s latest Science-Fiction film directed by and starring Georges Clooney. He plays a lone scientist whose sole purpose is to warn a crew of astronauts about a global catastrophe. Or something like that. The film is all over the place from the word go, with Clooney failing to deliver on an emotional level. How can anyone give a crap about all these characters if we’re not given a single reason to do so? But that’s just one of the things that bothered me here. Visually, the movie earns some extra points. But everything else is a dud. Space movies have never been this dull. Skip “The Midnight Sky” and stream the limited series “Away” instead.
